Barient 2 speed 21ST issues?

One of my concerns noted in my survey Of the E28 was play in the drums of the genny winches. I could grab the drum and rock it on the the shaft. The same for both winches. They (as with the rest of the winches) are pretty gummed up so it is hard to tell how this would affect their performance. Deducting the replacement cost from my offer would, I think, be just too much since I already have several necessary ones in the works.

This play is not normal - correct?

How much play is OK, how much is a concern?

Thanks in advance.

I have the same Barient 21 STC on my boat. They will have a *little* play rotationally, as the pawls lock in. And, I don't think a little vertical or horizontal play is cause for concern. The drum, as a unit, slips over the spindle and is locked in place by the top cap / cover.

Lack of cleaning/maintanence should not affect "play", but all springs / pawls should be checked (these parts might be hard to get) for wear and proper operation. These Barients were very robustly constructed, but they are indeed aging (mine are 21 yrs old).

Fwiw, I replaced my 21s with Andersen 40STs. I wanted a bit more power in 2nd gear.

It's a buyer's mrkt, so if you want to ask the seller to complete a preventative maintenace as a condition of sale...worst they can say is no.
